"We have a plum tree in our yard, and some years it's so full of fruit that its branches have to be propped up. I always make one or two tarts to freeze for later."

  1. In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar and salt; cut in the shortening until crumbly. Gradually add water, tossing with a fork until a ball forms. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1-1/2 hours. On a lightly floured surface, roll pastry into a 9-in. circle. Transfer to a foil-lined 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan.
  2. In a bowl, combine the plums, 3 tablespoons sugar and flour. Place on the center of pastry. Bring edges of pastry over filling, leaving 3-1/2 in. of filling uncovered. Brush crust with egg white, then sprinkle with remaining sugar. Bake at 375 degrees F for 40-45 minutes or until bubbly and crust is golden brown.

This recipe was great, and used a LOT of the plums from my trees! I added 1 tsp of cinnamon and made them into little tarts (4-5) instead of one large one. They froze well and were a great tre...

I used 1/4 c of cold butter instead of shortening and the crust tasted great. (Kind of reminded me of shortbread cookies.) I did feel that the recipe was missing something so next time I will ad...

Love it! Especially the crust =] I sprinkled sugar on the top & left out the egg. It was great! I have never cooked with plums before or made a crust from scratch, & was afraid of how this would...

I substituted 1/2 cup of white flour for 1/2 cup whole meal flour. Also used butter instead of shortening. It was DELICIOUS - the outside crust was a bit crunchy at the edges, and the inside was...

Oh my gosh! This is THE BEST tart I have ever tasted! It was so good! I can't wait till dessert time! Very good, no doubt about it.

Holy goodness.... Had an abundance of plums I had to use and opted to try out this recipe. The plums I had were very ripe and very sweet so I went with the recommended 3T regular sugar in the f...
